Wrought Iron Coffee Table

The phrase “wrought iron furniture” immediately creates an image of romantic elegance and rustic charm, and a wrought iron coffee table can certainly give a country or vintage living room a touch of upscale, antique class. On the other hand, forged iron is equally at home in an industrial motif, and its raw, handcrafted look can provide a stunning counterpoint when used as an element in a contemporary décor.

When you shop for a wrought iron coffee table, it’s important to understand that many pieces sold with that description aren’t actually made from wrought iron. The phrase is often used to describe the classic style we’re all familiar with, but it’s really just a description of the way the iron was created.

“Wrought iron” actually means that the metal has been heated and then hand-forged with tools. Most of today’s iron, by contrast, is “cast iron” which has been melted and then poured into a mold to harden and cut. That explains why craftsmen are able to shape real wrought iron into the intricate designs associated with the name, and why the finished product is considerably stronger. It’s also why wrought iron is usually more expensive.

A wrought iron coffee table most often has a base fashioned from the metal with a glass tabletop. The design is contemporary, and the translucent top shows off the ironwork to best advantage. Wrought iron with straightforward geometric designs or gentle curves gives the piece a modern look, particularly if the coffee table is rectangular or square in shape. If the iron is crafted with elegant scrollwork, intricate leaf patterns or cabriole legs, it contributes an antique or vintage element to the room’s overall design, especially if the coffee table is oval or round. Some of these tables incorporate wrought iron into the construction of the top as well.

Of course, a wrought iron base can also be used in conjunction with wood, tile, granite or even marble tabletops. While less commonly seen, each of these wrought iron coffee tables sets a markedly different tone; a wood-and-wrought-iron table can create a feeling of modern country charm, while one with wrought iron and marble is the ultimate in sophisticated design.

What we are looking for:

Shape:

A wrought iron coffee table can be square, rectangular, or round, which is why it's so important to find the right shape for your living room. A round wrought iron coffee table is ideal for narrow spaces due to the lesser width of a circle compared to a rectangle or wide square. It's also a good choice if you have a loveseat or small sofa, as it will be proportional in size to the rest of your furniture. Ken Fulk states that choosing a proportional coffee table will help to create a cohesive look. Another example of this is choosing a rectangular table for a wide sofa or sectional sofa furniture set. A larger table will fill any empty space without looking out of place.

Maintenance:

As wrought iron is a specialist metal, you'll need to know how to take care of it. Luckily, maintaining iron isn't that difficult, but wrought iron will rust over time if you don't maintain it well. The most important thing is to always keep on top of maintaining your wrought iron coffee table. Per Kelly Behun, you should clean your table at least twice a season if you plan to use it often. For indoor wrought iron, white vinegar and water is a great cleaning solution that won't cause any further damage to the iron -- just make sure to rinse it off thoroughly. If rust does appear, sandpaper can help to remove it. Moreover, if your table is painted, you may need to re-paint it, so keep this in mind if you want a low-maintenance table.

Style and Color:

The beauty of wrought iron coffee tables lies in their design. Scrollwork and other carved details are commonly seen, so you can create an antique or fairytale décor scheme easily. Of course, there are modern wrought iron coffee tables too that don't feature scrollwork detail, usually with an industrial look that's in keeping with the iron construction. Additionally, a glass-top wrought iron table will add a more contemporary feel to your living room, especially if the iron has been painted black. A wrought iron coffee table with a wooden top is a great way to introduce a rustic look and will fit in with both industrial and cottage themes. For a vintage look, opt for distressed wood, though remember that this can be more difficult to maintain.

Storage:

Though wrought iron coffee tables don't necessarily come with storage, a few have a shelf below. This shelf could be used for coffee table books, TV remotes, or just as a place to put your feet up. Not all coffee tables will have storage, though, as some will prioritize scrollwork detail on the legs and at the sides. You'll need to figure out whether you would like storage or whether you don't mind losing storage space for detail. If you already have a lot of storage in a TV stand or side table, storage isn't as vital, either. Wrought iron coffee tables also often have ornate detail that doesn't lend itself to shelving, so the included shelves can be relatively small.
